Welcome to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Children's Room!

Ms. Clara Webber was the first children's librarian of Pomona Public Library. A long time correspondent with Mrs. Laura Ingalls Wilder, she was instrumental in having the Children's Room named in honor of Mrs. Wilder on May 25, 1950. Today, we house the original hand written manuscript for the novel Little Town on the Prairie. Every February, we host the Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable in honor of Mrs. Wilder's February 7th birthday.

Little House in the Big Woods

Hello young Pomonans! Yes, I'm going to talk about the Sociable again and I will everyday until it gets here! A week from tomorrow is our Laura Ingalls Wilder Sociable. That's February 7, 2009 from 1:00pm-4:00pm. We will have entertainment, crafts. birthday cake, punch and a whole lot of fun.

This book, Little House in the Big Woods, is Laura's first book about her life during her childhood. She really did live in a small cabin in a forest of trees. She had her Ma, Pa, sister Mary, baby sister Carrie and a little dog named Jack.

Laura's books are very popular children's books. We are very lucky to have our children's room named after her.

Come in on February 7th and we'll have a great time!

Joke of the day: Why did the cowboy leave his job at the shoe store?
Answer: He got the boot! :)
